Reinforcer Assessment Ages 5 and under[edit | edit source]
Look at the list below. Not all students will like items on the list. You must be a reinforcer detective. Some reinforcers are obscure such as vacuum cleaning or playing with an old answering machine.
Using parents, siblings, teachers, or aides, check the list of items/activities the child likes or seems to find fun or reinforcing. Items may not be played with or used appropriately but the student might simply be attracted to them. Before starting any behavioral program, ensure you have at least a few reinforcers.
Do not continue to lesson 2 until this is completed
Print this page and put a checkmark next each item the student likes as defined by requesting or initiating engagement with the item or event. If possible, enter a specific description (brand, type, name) of the item.
